My new friend Autumn!

Heeey! I have a new friend named Autumn. She just joined Glenbrae School today, she's a awesome person to talk too, she has brown hair with golden highlights, and she is the selfie queen, she has 954 selfies on her Ipad! Just of herself and her friends. Autumn is in love with Maths. Rugby is her life, when she was 5 years old, Autumn and her older brother were playing with the Rugby ball. Every time her brother went to his Rugby tournaments, she always came to support him. When she got older, like 9 years old, and that's when she got so obsessed with Rugby. She is now 10 years old and she already has so many trophies in her black trophy shelf. Yes, I know all this, because we did a best friend quiz, I’ll tell you about it later.

So that was just a couple of facts about Autumn, now let me tell you, about Shannon and Autumn. On the day, our teacher told us we had to get random presents and put them in a bag so we could pick some out of the bag, but since me and Autumn didn’t know that we were supposed to do that, we put each others names on the presents and gave it to eachcothe .We both gave each other amazing presents, I won’t tell you what it was awesome and I felt thankful.

The other day, during lunch time, because we had more time than morning-tea… Anyway me and Autumn had done a challenge/quiz, basically what it is, you just ask the person a question about yourself (eg: When is my birthday?), so if you get it correct, you can ask them a question about yourself, then they try and get it correct, if they don’t get the correct answer by three tries then you will just have to tell them.

Me and Autumn have become great friends, I was so grateful she had came to our school, I don't really know what I would do without her. I enjoyed the best friend Quiz, not only it was fun, but I got to know more about her. I’m proud to call Autumn my best friend.

All Blacks demolished France

Name of article that I read: All Blacks demolish France

Author: Shem Banbury

1. Who is the main person or group of people in this news article? The main people are the All Blacks (NZ), France, everyone who works with the All Blacks or France, and people who work at the stadium.

2. What was the key event from the news article? The key event is that the All Blacks (NZ) demolished France during the quarter finals.

3. Where did this event take place? This event took place at Wembley stadium in Cardiff.

4. When did this event take place? On the 17th of October (4 days ago) is when this event took place.

5. Why did this event happen? This event happened, because those two teams had got the highest points during the Rugby World Cup, so they got to play in the quarter-finals and it was very exciting, but it was also a nerve-racking game, because in 2007 the All Blacks and France had played together at the exact same place where they played in 2007. France won that game in 2007, so it was kind of a memory to them so I think that’s why the All Blacks tried their hardest to win, and I think that’s why we got a lot of tries and we WON! (62 - 13)

What I'm grateful for...

In 2015 I am grateful that I met some of the Warriors, that we get free food from my school, and that at Glenbrae we have a great education thanks to our awesome Glenbrae School teachers. I’d also like to achieve by the end of the year higher goals in learning like Maths, Reading and Writing.

A few weeks back, the other year six’s and I had been taught how to improve more in Rugby, after they taught the year 7 and 8’s. I am grateful I met some of the Warriors & they taught some of our School students how to succeed & learn more skills about Rugby.

Glenbrae school is so lucky to have free food like: breakfast (Cereal & Milo), fruit, milk and we can order lunch too. We can also get free lunch from the office if we forget to bring lunch from home. So thank you to the staff that works in the office and also the teachers that had taught me throughout my life while I am at this School. I’d like to achieve higher goals in learning like Maths, Reading and Writing.

During the Holidays...

Guess what happened during October? Well, don’t worry, because I’m going to tell you. On the very special day the 7th of October was my birthday. I didn't really want to celebrate it, but we still had a little birthday party with my parents, auntie, my two uncles and my two cousins. I got a few presents, and quite a lot of food and snacks. I didn't get many presents I only got 11, because I was turning 11 years old.

After my Dad got back from shopping, I saw that he bought a cake for me. I didn't see what it looked like, because it was in a plastic bag and I don’t think that my Dad wanted me to see my birthday cake yet. While Mum and one of my uncles were blowing some balloons up, I was opening my presents (I won’t tell what I got).

Later, my Mum and Dad were cooking some food (I also won’t tell what we were going to eat), but trust me it was delicious. I was running around to see what everyone was doing, because I was so excited! It was now the afternoon... My Dad decided to ring my other uncle, auntie and two cousins to come over and celebrate my birthday as well. We left out some snacks for them to munch on, while my Mum and Dad cooked the actual food.

Next, my cousins and I went to my room to play, by that I mean jump all over the bed, mess it up and then make it all tidy again, so we could all watch Adventure Time! Moments later, we were called to come and eat. After that, we got out my birthday cake. It was a chocolate cake covered in coffee flavoured icing and it said “Happy Birthday Shannon” with pink icing on top of my cake, there was dots of icing around the cake too. It was stunning! My mum lit the candle, (the candle also plays the birthday song). I used the knife to cut my cake, it looked great.

Everyone got a piece of cake to feed me. While they were taking photos, it was kinda weird and awkward when they had to leave the spoon and cake in my mouth, for the photo. The cake tasted better than I thought it would. We dished our food out and sat down to eat. On Friday we were going to Taupo then to Rotorua after that. I’m now 11 years old and felt more mature and special.
